Nip-Tuck: Different Visa Regimes for Russians in India, the U.S., and Southern Europe

November and December 2011 will see the visa regimes between Russia, India, the United States, and three Southern European states (Albania, Macedonia, and Crotia) undergoing changes.

      

      Russia-India. The bilateral migration agreement provides a 6-months visa entry for Russian tourists to India. Several visitor categories - figures of Arts and Science, business people, and students - will be able to obtain a visa quickier than before. Additionally, individuals and companies from both countries, with the need to frequently travel to India or Russia, will be able to apply for a 5-year multi-entry visa. The new regulations come into force on December 1, 2011.

      

      Russia-United States. By the end of November the two countries will have settled down the minute details of a new regime that facilitates the visa entry for Russians. The time period should be extended, while the application procedure is expected to become easier and more swift. Russia will also have to ratify certain documents, according to the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs: the country currently does not allow for a 3-year multi-entry visa. The future plan includes laying down the conditions for 90-days visa-free entry to both countries.

      

      Russia-Albania, Russia-Macedonia, Russia-Croatia. Ever since Egypt has stopped being a safe tourist destination, Russians flocked to the warm shores of the Balkan Peninsula. Albania, Macedonia, and Croatia have all lifted the visa requirements for the tourist high season; however now the visas are back. As of November 1, 2011 Russians will need to apply for an Albanian visa well in advance, while Macedonia and Croatia demand the proof of payment for the whole period of the stay. Type C of Schengen visa is satisfactory for the new visa requirements.

      

      In the meantime, if you are planning to come to Russia as a tourist and have your invitation handy, you can apply for your Russian visa straight away.
